GPHC Hosted Events

Park Hill Garden Walk – Sunday, June 24th, 9am-3pm

Every June Greater Park Hill Community, Inc. sponsors a Garden Walk. The daylong event showcases numerous gardens throughout Park Hill (the rotation of participating gardeners changes every year). Residents and visitors purchase tickets to check out the featured gardens on the Garden Walk, meet the gardeners and their neighbors. Artists also display their creations and are at work in the gardens the day of the tour. Proceeds benefit GPHC, Inc. The website for the Garden Walk is parkhillgardenwalk.org.

4th of July Parade 

Every Independence Day GPHC, Inc. sponsors the Park Hill 4th of July Parade. In its seventh year, the parade draws hundreds of participants and thousands of spectators. The parade route runs along 23rd Avenue, from Dexter St. to Krameria St. The website for the Park Hill 4th of July Parade is parkhillparade.com.

Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair

Every September, Greater Park Hill Community, Inc., along with neighbors, businesses and community organizations, hold the annual Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair. This tradition began in 1978 when a local Realtor organized a tour of Park Hill homes to showcase the rich history and diverse architecture of the neighborhood. Over the years, the Home Tour & Street Fair has grown and evolved into a community event that, in addition to featuring beautiful homes and historic landmarks, includes a free daylong street fair on Forest Parkway in the heart of the neighborhood. The Home Tour & Street Fair is GPHC’s largest fundraiser of the year, and helps support neighborhood safety programs, food assistance programs and community events. The website for the Home Tour & Street Fair is parkhillhometour.org.
